Movie with the Best Car Chase Scene

It may be one of the most used and abused movie cliches, but when done correctly, the car chase scene can be the highlight of any film. This list is a collection of the movies that did the car chase scene correctly.

The Top Ten

1 Bullitt

The original car chase right here. Great cars, great camera angles. Still better than car chases today! - gibsonrock53

They keep reusing the soundtrack from this to try and improve all the wanna be car chases in lesser films. It's pretty funny to hear Steve's double clutching when the hero is driving an automatic Chevy. - dumbasilook

The coolest cars and the coolest camera angles

What makes it even better is that the " stunts " were done by the leading role actor himself.

2 Matrix Reloaded

The most spectacular car chase scene in movie history, with never seen images - MatrixGuy

Pure CGI car chase. Doesn't deserve to be at rank number two.

The greatest chase scene in movie history

3 Ronin

The best realistic chase scene. Feels like you are right
In the action. Even us Yanks like it. If French were so great it would be La Google. "Oui?"

La Peripherique... need one say more, except here they do it the wrong way round!
(And for all you stupid Yanks, look it up on Google! )

Probably the most realistic car chase scene ever.

4 The Blues Brothers

Physics? What the heck is physics? Everything in that last car chase was ridiculously excessive and illogical, and because of that, it is hands down the best one I've ever seen. I could not stop laughing! I had to watch the whole thing over and over again. Just fantastic!

You can't compare anything to being chased down by a country band, American Nazis, the police, the military, and tons of other groups of people.

that scene through the mall is a classic - feedurhead4

Great chase scene with the 2 best car pileups ever!

5 The Fast and the Furious

holy crap, that film, was so freakin amazing. tuned cars, lots of explosions, awesome music, it was intense. i've never seen better. #1 all the way

6 The Bourne Identity

The one in Bourne Supremacy is better when he's in the taxi cab. This is still a good car chase scene though. - expertCritic

Spectacular and realistic car chase scene, the best I've seen out of any movie, including Matrix, Ronin, Italian Job, etc.
Not over the top (special effects such as The Matrix) and believable.

7 Transporter
8 Gone in 60 Seconds

he does hiw OWN stunts people. That make all the difference - Ravergirl

It's not just about the chase its about the car and come on who doesn't like that mustang

What a great scene! Nick cage was so convincing, and it really is becoming a classic.

An AWESOME scene! and nick cage rocks - Banana

9 The French Connection

How THIS MOVIE didn't make the top ten list tells me that WAY too many kids are voting on this website......

I agree. The only movies this thirteen year old kids ever saw is the "Fast and furious" crap.

10 The Italian Job (2003)

Nothing compared to the original... No CGI in sight! The original also had the scene with the car being pushed off the cliff

Since this movie, the mini cooper became my dream car - BigZ

of course

but remember thecrash in blues brothers 2000
simply the greatest - Cantonez

The Contenders

11 Death Proof

Uh... no CGI, and Zoe Bell trying to stay on the hood of the car at speeds in excess of 100 mph... do me a favor, watch it and then come back and vote.

12 Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

The best, most destructive car/truck/everything chase scene of all time.

13 The Bourne Supremacy

One of the best ever in my opinion. Even the scenes where he wrecks and crashes into other vehicles seems very realistic. Kudos to the director and crew who shot that. - expertCritic

With out a doubt the best car chase ever, it has my head wrecked trying to find the song to it

The best car chase of all time with the greatest ending ever.

One of the best car chases thats actually realistic.

14 Smokey and the Bandit

To not make this in the top spot is a crime. The whole movie is a car chase! - Baltimore1993

Great movie, lots of car chase scenes. Should be higher. - expertCritic

15 Bad Boys II
16 Vanishing Point

Classic. Amazing. Sad that this isn't on the top 10.

The best, hands down!

18 The Dark Knight

Car chases don't come better than this. At all.

19 Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny


20 To Live and Die in L.A.

Car chase on a highway, where the cars are moving AGAINST the flow of traffic.

Carchase in the river! Not only a great charchase, a film out of the ordinary in more than one sense!
